Kindergarten, Pre-Prep, Preparatory and Senior School for Boys and Girls


Preparatory School

Bramdean moved to Exeter in 1901 and has a long and distinguished history. It is an interdenominational
school for boys and girls. The school is on a self-contained site in its own grounds, with its own sports field
and indoor floodlit uni-turf sports area and a large chapel. The school is a dynamic place to be.

Boys and girls are educated in a happy atmosphere which provides a stimulating learning environment from
Kindergarten through to Sixth Form. Bramdean has clearly defined aims to encourage pupils to be self
confident, enquiring, tolerant, positive and well rounded characters.

The curriculum is broad and balanced. Classes are kept to a sensible size enabling pupils to receive individual
attention. The quality of pastoral care is outstanding.

At Bramdean, we offer continuity of education. Pupils in the preparatory school follow the Independent
School's Common Entrance syllabus in all subjects. This syllabus follows the National Curriculum in subject
matter but extends pupils beyond these levels. Pupils progress through the school by ability. Their progress
is under constant review by both form and subject teachers. Pupils sit end of year assessments in every subject
taught. Regular communication with parents through termly reports, parents evenings and the daily prep diary
ensures a consistent approach. Pupils move to the senior school at the age of 12 plus where the school
achieves consistently excellent examination results in all subjects.

Each year Bramdean School awards a limited number of Junior School bursaries and scholarships to pupils
aged between 7-10 years. These academic, music and sporting awards are available to new pupils only and
can be tenable to the completion of GCSE at sixteen plus. Contact the school for details.
